This group "American Seniors Against Obamacare is clearly scamming the gullible and vulnerable of our elderly population with their outlandish, unfounded claims and scare tactics. As a result, those who have little to lose send these crooks money and get on a list for other scam artists. My elderly mother has been victimized to the point of financial ruin by groups like this, and I am now trying to help her simply have enough to eat and stay warm. These people are the worst of the worst and our elderly deserve better than to have to endure this sort of predation.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Shut them down and indict those involved for mail fraud.

This is an extraordinary pack of lies. I wouldn't be surprised if it was funded by the health insurance industry, which has been sucking Dollars out of money Americans meant to spend for health care.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Defund it, finish it, send its organizers to a psychiatrist.

My wife and I are both in our 80's and so far this week I have received two requests for money from two different organizations: AMERICAN SENIORS AGAINST OBAMACARE (a program of CITIZEN GUARDIAN INC) and THE SENIORS CENTER (a program of checks and balances for economic growth), both of which are located in Washington, D.C. Being suspicious of scams against senior citizens, I googled both programs and got the same result: "scams"! I did not, nor will I respond to these letters but I am writing this review to help warn other Seniors of their scam aspect. The very way they were written was a clue. EXAMPLE; "..because I need your reply to come back without delay. By the time you get this there won't be much time left".

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to see it scuttled!! The impact it can have could be disasterous to a senior trusting the reasons given for its existence in its "come ons".

I am a care giver for an elderly woman with mild to moderate dementia. I have been trying to get her off this organization's mailing lists for over a year. They have ignored the requests. My patient gets anywhere from 2 to 6 mailings per WEEK from these people. They continually use fear-filled language, usually focused around political issues of Medicare, immigrants, or the 'death tax'.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Take away their nonprofit status, require them to take people off their mailing lisis when requested.
